What a horrific death for such a noble creature. I truly hope the evil person who did this is incarcerated for a long, long time. Maybe in this country killing an endangered tiger is death. That would be justice.

Terribly sad! I really hope they catch the responsible party and put him/her away for a very long time! This noble animal should never have met such a sad fate. Hopefully, killing an endangered tiger in that country is punishable by death - that would be true justice!

What a terrible way to die.
I hope it wasn't a caretaker that poisoned the Tiger.
It 's awful to think we can't even trust a caretaker to care for the Animals.

If the DUMB ASS didn't want to take care of the animals, he should not have been their in the first place. I think that he should be punished severely for killing this beautiful animal.

Aarrrghhhhh! Every time MAN has their hands in things, animals get wiped out. Sick of incompetents being in charge of something they cannot take care of responsibly. Leave them alone, move out of their habitats and let them live naturally, and perhaps they will replenish their own!!!

This is such a sad story. I guess that proves that animal cruelty is all over the world.
